If you take photos at full resolution, pictures will be awesome.
In my opinion, this Samsung C5 is very slim and the camera len protrude, why don't get it in 7.5mm thick , 7.5mm still very slim, then could gain the battery capacity and raze the protrude camera len? Put on the case on can hide the protrude camera len, but it become thicker but and also nothing battery capacity gained.
Nice phone, very similar to the iphone but I dislike the battery it's in the average. But otherwise are great for this phone.
Adreno 405 can't keep up with most modern games, the SoC is alright other than that but it's kinda frustrating not being able to run Temple Run 2 at steady FPS while my old Nokia 820 with Adreno 225 has no problems dealing with it. (2012 phone) I just fail to see the reason behind launching a U$300 phone nowadays that's using the same chipset of a Lenovo K5 that costs less than half.
"yes Sony phones are amazing."
"But only on paper.. In real world usage it just sucks.."
>It's the other way around. Sony's specs are underwhelming relative to its flagship competitors. But you'll be surprised when you ACTUALLY used it.
"An average camera.."
>An average camera doesn't get a praise. Sony, on the other hand, is always tested and praised alongside the likes of iPhone, Samsung, LG, and HTC cameras.
"Bad display. Poor display.."
>Sony is one of the best (if not the best) IPS LCD display manufacturer.
I haven't heard a bending fiasco on Sony. And you don't use a smartphone as a sledgehammer.
"And crappy features for very high premium price."
>Again, Sony's features are what everybody wants. Minus the price, yes you are correct. It has a very premium price.
"And confusing water proof feature.."
>What is there to confuse with IP68? Waterproof in 1.5m within 30mins. Don't tell me that you live underwater.
"I consider it as a beautiful crap like iPhone."
>iPhone? Beautiful crap? iPhones are amazing (and overpriced) as well.
"No change in design."
>They are using an 'omnibalance' design. It depends on how you look at it.
"old Sony-Ericsson was good.."
You are a beautiful troll. I like you :) Now, back to your cave.
For a $300+, a Snapdragon 617 is abominable. It should've been a 650. Yeah you won't have problems with casual usage from a bunched-up 8 a53s but when push comes to shove, you might regret it. I guess it wins in the looks department then fell short on the innards.

It looks like a chinese copy of the Iphone. Only bigger. Like the fakes that used to be rampant a couple of years ago. Big bulky copies of originals. Samsung had done a good job on the new A(2016) series. The design was original for a change. They should have just got a 4.5 or 4.8 kind of version to compete with the same design. Samsung will always be apple chasers.
I agree with the comments on the Sony phone. I am proud owner of Sony ZR which is around one and half year old. This phone supports 4G and give run to most of leading phones in terms of specs today. The experience is superb, The UI, software is simply grate and I don't remember it hang any time. To know the value of Sony phones, you have to use it. I will say it is Apple , Sony and others.
